Town Attorney Peter Scagnelli said if the Helms wanted to put forward an amendment to the town's R3 Resident District to allow for chickens to be held on a property that the change could be a long process.
"They are not filing a paper and in a couple of days and get an answer," said Scagnelli. "They would have to make a formal request to the Town Board that such a change be made to the zoning ordinance."
In the meantime, Helm said she is encouraging residents to continue writing Town Board officials in support of her cause. Also, a Facebook page has been created under the name "Niskayuna Chickens" to offer updates on the process.""
